Carl W. Soderstrom, MD Board Certified Dermatologist
In the age of the “selfie,” we have come to realize that there is flattering angle for photos and a not so flattering angle. Well, chin up, ladies! The solution to that dreaded double chin has arrived. Introducing Kybella®!
For those who suffer from the frustration of trying to lose fat below the chin, Kybella® is a beauty breakthrough. Kybella® is an FDA approved injectable substance designed to destroy fat cells. It’s made from a fat-eliminating deoxycholic acid found naturally in our bodies. When injected into the skin, fat cells are destroyed so they can’t re-accumulate, making Kybella® treatments effective for the long term despite future weight gain.
Patients who receive Kybella® should plan on two to six treatments, each taking about 20 minutes and spaced one month apart. Unlike liposuction, Kybella injections are quick, non-surgical and typically cost less in terms of money and recovery time.
A shot that zaps fat sounds too good to be true, right? That’s why we’re inviting you to try Kybella® and experience this innovative procedure for yourself. If you’ve tried dieting and you’ve tried exercise, it may be time to find out if Kybella® could help you finally say goodbye to that double chin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Kybella® destroys fat cells and reduces the appearance of fat below the chin.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
This is an in-office procedure done by our highly skilled board certified plastic surgeons. A few tiny injections of the product are administered to the submental fat under the chin. Some swelling and tenderness is expected for a few days. Prior to treatment we make you feel comfortable with a numbing solution and/or ice. A follow up appointment is scheduled in a few weeks, and 2nd treatment is scheduled as needed. Optimal results are seen typically with two visits.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR KYBELLA®?
Your Plastic Surgeon will determine this at your initial consultation. If you are not a good candidate for Kybella®, there may be other options for you.
WHAT IS THE COST?
$2700 – which includes two Kybella® treatments and our Skin Dimensions Advanced Firming Neck Cream for post-treatment use.
